Sherakhan’s world tour is scheduled to start in the Netherlands, continuing to sail to the Caribbean’s tropical paradise St Maarten and the classic yacht charter destination, the British Virgin Islands. Continuing through to Puerto Rico, San Juan the yacht will then reach the Dominican Republic, Panama and discover other spectacular destinations while around the Caribbean area. This area is the most popular place to rent a yacht during the European winter months, offering fantastic diversity. The Caribbean can be called a natural wonderland, with an ocean full of wonderful treasures, including coral atolls and substantial mountainous islands.

After spending some time around the warm Caribbean Islands, SHERAKHAN will move onto the remarkable charter destination – Patagonia. This truly amazing area is like a world within a world. Ushuaia is the capital of the Province of Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, and while Tierra del Fuego is called the Land of the End of the World, Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world. After Patagonia, Sherakhan will ‘sail’ to the Falkland Islands; a naturally beautiful, unique and remote destination that is the unspoilt Gateway to the Antarctic. Intrepid yacht charterers also have a rare opportunity to visit Antarctica aboard a luxury yacht, as there are only a few luxury vessels cruising this breath-taking part of the world.
Breaching Humpback Whale - Patagonia is teeming with wildlife including sea lions, elephant seals, southern right whales, dolphins, Magellanic penguins and even the occasional orca.
After a few months spent exploring the southern part of the globe, it is time to head up to the warmer climates. Sherakhan’s plans are to visit South Africa’s Cape Town and Durban and from here move onto the wonderful world of Madagascar, with its remarkable flora and fauna matched by its epic landscapes of an astonishing diversity. Chartering a yacht in Madagascar you will have the opportunity to discover some of its 5000km of spectacular coastline, 450km of barrier reef and 25 islands.
Following her trips around South Africa and Madagascar, Sherakhan will be ready to take on South East Asia; yacht charter destinations that will take your breath away. Staring with the ‘Jewel of the Indian Ocean’, Seychelles, charter guests can enjoy the idyllic white sandy beaches, calm waters and sparkling lagoons. Maldives is the next stop for Sherakhan, where, some say, the best beaches in the world can be found. Another destination during Sherakhan superyacht’s world tour is Sri Lanka, known for its numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites and ancient, rich culture. The multidimensional India, that follows after Sri Lanka, will leave you intoxicated by its mesmerising culture and diversity.
Seychelles in the Indian Ocean
A superb yacht charter location in Thailand is the Andaman Sea. The appeal of the Andaman as a yacht charter location is obvious: most of its picturesque islands are only accessible by a boat. This area is still an undiscovered gem for charterers and sailors alike. Myanmar or Burma offers charter vacations that are truly out there and chartering Sherakhan in this area is a unique opportunity to discover this part of the world. From here the mega yacht will cruise the coast of Thailand, where guests can enjoy the wonderful beaches and the magnificent scenery. The following destination of the World Tour is Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in Malaysia.
July, August and September 2014 will see Sherakhan yacht cruising Bali, Brunei with its dense rain forests, serenity and religious heritage, as well as the Philippines. Philippines has long been a crossroads of trade routes, with influences from everywhere from China, Japan, Malaysia, Spain, and the US overlaying the native cultures. After decades of political upheaval, the country has only recently started to become a leisure travel destination, meaning that many of its stunning natural sights are practically undeveloped with very little tourists around.
The amazing and remote Papua New Guinea is another exciting ‘corner of the world’ to visit on board of the beautiful Sherakhan yacht. Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world, over 850 indigenous languages are spoken here and it is also the world’s least explored country, culturally and geographically. An amazing and colourful place to visit for an unforgettable charter holiday.
Papua New Guinea
Next stop: Solomon Islands. Chartering a yacht in the Solomon Islands is like cruising in paradise. There are thousands of islands, numerous beautiful atolls, reefs, lagoons, coconuts, palms, mangroves and orchids. Imagine cruising the pristine emerald and azure waters, experiencing endless beauty. Fiji is the perfect place to watch dolphins swim next to your boat, or enjoy relaxing time game fishing, diving and snorkelling. Fiji is also named as the “Soft Coral Capital of the World” and is rated as one of the top 10 dive destinations in the world.
French Polynesia is made up of a number of groups of Polynesian Islands, the best known being Tahiti in the Society Islands group. Tahiti is also the most populated island with the seat of the capital of the territory Papeete. Here you will come across an amazing combination of lush tropical atolls and volcanic peaks, rising up from picturesque blue lagoons. Some of the islands that usually get included in charter itineraries around the French Polynesia include Tahiti, Raiatea, Tahaa, Bora Bora, Maupiti, Tikehau, Rurutu and Huahine. For a more remote cruising experience there is Tuamoto and the Marquesas.
A Galapagos Islands yacht charter is a divine South American holiday destination.The Galápagos Islands are naturally beautiful and an excellent place to discover while cruising on a luxury charter yacht. The Galapagos’ surrounding waters form an Ecuadorian province, a national park, and a biological marine reserve. From here the following destination is Costa Rica: The beauty of this part of the world is extraordinary as can be seen from the natural jungles and seas on both sides of the isthmus. Panama represents the last charter destination of the Sherakhan World Tour, before the yacht returns to cruise around the Caribbean.
Originally built by Burger Boat Company in Manitowoc, Wisconsin USA, the now called motor yacht Zerlina was constructed under Hull 216C and named Leipal at her launch in 1967. Her first owner, Doyke W. Cotton Jr, sold the yacht after 18 years to Paul R. Ilyinsky, who renamed her Angelique. Once Ilyinsky sold the yacht, she fell into disrepair and got abandoned. In 2011, Angelique was purchased by her current owners, Bjarke Fugl and Karla M. Polito, who restored the newly renamed ZERLINA yacht to her full glory. After 44 years, Zerlina was ready to take on the longest journey of her life, with her initial voyage, from Florida to Denmark, being just the beginning …

June 12, 2012—ZERLINA yacht is launched in Green Cove Springs, Florida. Having been restored by her owners, ZERLINA was ready for her voyage to her new home. As it was time to bid farewell, almost everyone from the city came to the docks to see us off. The voyage to Denmark had just begun!

Motor yacht Zerlina
We arrived in New York harbor on the eve of America’s 236th birthday and found no place to dock ZERLINA. Captain Bjarke, maneuvering in the choppy waters of the Hudson River, brought the nimble motor yacht ZERLINA alongside the walls of Battery Park, where our new crew members, eager to start the voyage, tossed their bags and leaped aboard ZERLINA.
There is no greater place to enjoy the Macy’s fireworks spectacular then on your own yacht in the Hudson River! An evening of fireworks, seeing old friends and creating new ones was what the first day of our voyage was all about. Bjarke, Anders, Richard and Bob were now the team to take ZERLINA to Denmark.
Zerlina Yacht by Burger Boat Company and her incredible journey
July 7, 2012—New York, New York to New Bedford, Massachusetts
The first couple of days were spent taking small trips and getting ready for the Atlantic crossing. We spent a day in New York City where we took the tender into the city and walked to Fin’s. We decided that since it may be the last time we saw a real city; we would enjoy singing Neil Diamond’s “Ramblin Rose” at the karaoke bar while indulging in the salty taste of fresh margaritas. ZERLINA’s final preparations were made; food was stored, loose items were packed for safe keeping, a lengthy systems testing, safety check lists reviewed and drills performed. No matter the confidence of the crew or how stout and dependable the quality of a Burger yacht, safety is paramount. But now, a big decision needed to be made. Which direction would we head? With a democratic vote, we chose the northern route. This route included Greenland, the land of glaciers and polar bears, as opposed to the shorter and warmer route to the popular islands of the Azores, maybe next time.
July 10, 2012—New Bedford, Massachusetts to Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, Canada
While crossing Cape Cod Bay, we were joined by a large whale and three dolphins on our portside. Absolutely beautiful!
Earlier that day, Bjarke, Richard and Anders decided that these might be the warmest waters we might be in for some time, so we jumped off the swim platform! Once we realized how cold the water really was, there was an even quicker jump out of the water. It was a sunny day and the temperature of the water was soon forgotten so we repeated the routine two or three more times. The four of us are different ages, but we all felt like little kids playing in our local swimming hole.
A whale passed us early that day, showing its large tail and slapping the water—by contrast, a Disney and Carnival ship passed in the evening. The moon rose with its fiery glory, does the moon always rise over the ocean so beautiful?
Early on the ninth day of our voyage, we pulled ZERLINA into Port Hawksburry. The hills were a pleasant change of scenery but, when Bjarke called customs we found out that they were a four hour drive away. Waiting aboard ZERLINA made the hills feel even further away, but an older couple in the boat next to us kept us company with their 9-month old puppy and fresh cookies. Puppies, cookies, grandparents!
Zerlina yacht's journey
July 12, 2012—Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia to Nanortalik; Greenland to Frederiksdal; Greenland to Prins Christian Sund Greenland—one of the most beautiful places on earth with huge icebergs.
The straits of Bells Isle are where we started keeping a double watch for icebergs. During Richard’s watch, he spots another whale—a Killer Whale this time. It was noted by all that the whales were always seen on Richard’s watch. To our starboard side is Cape Breton Island with vertical cliffs and quaint white farmhouses dotting the shoreline. The waters off Newfoundland and Labrador can be rife with ice and icebergs, so caution is advised. Icebergs are usually visible on radar, but the bergy bits (small icebergs) and growlers (small remnants) may not be.
Zerlina Yacht by Burger Boat Company
The moon is getting smaller each evening. The compass slowly and gracefully swings, telling us which way to go. As we are drawing a line to Greenland, we clear the deck of anything that could be lost to the seas in rough weather. Expecting 20’ waves on a calm day, what should we expect or be ready for? Of all the boats built in the world, most stay close to their home port, but ZERLINA is in unfamiliar waters, with unfamiliar sunsets and sunrises.
What a week! Nothing was written as the seas of the Labrador Sea were very heavy. The crew watches were now four hours on and four hours off, with two people having a two hour overlap. We zigzagged through the fjords to the weather station on the eastern side of Greenland, called Prins Christian Sund, where we were served Danishes, coffee and juice. The weather report showed a favorable high pressure so we headed out into the arctic, dodging icebergs, growlers and bits for 24 nautical miles.
Zerlina Yacht by Burger Boat Company
We arrived in Nanortalik earlier in the week after four days of bad weather and angry waves! Tossing about makes some men tougher and weakens others. No matter which you are; it feels good to have your feet on solid ground. Darkness was still on the shore as we approached Nanortalik, forcing us to take turns on the bow with the VHS giving signals to Bjarke as we navigated the iceberg strewn waters. The fog began to lift and an incredible coastline of jagged mountains, towering icebergs and small islands softened by the power of the eroding waves gave us a view worth the four days at sea. Bjarke skillfully docked ZERLINA and, after crafting a rum and coke with ice from our travels, we jumped ashore.
The next morning we enjoyed fresh bakery and headed back to the boat. Bob had stayed on board to protect the fuel from thieves. Bob and Richard changed the oil and Bjarke and Anders worked on adjusting the starter motor. ZERLINA was carrying the four of us through the most amazing waters with icebergs of every shape and size. We had two goals for icebergs: to get beautiful photographs with ZERLINA and to climb aboard an iceberg and make it our playground.
Yacht Zerlina during restoration
To get photographs meant we had to be in a different boat, so Richard captained the dinghy while Anders took the photographs. The iceberg we wanted to photograph was simple in shape but with two ribbons of blue flowing through it with grace and beauty. The ribbons somehow matched the shape of ZERLINA. We spent an hour taking the most incredible photos. Driving the dinghy so the sun would shine through the pure blue streaks, maintaining proper distance from ZERLINA and keeping Anders with the lens pointed in the right direction was Richard’s job. It was beautiful, pure perfection, the best, or so we thought. After capturing the best photos anyone could possibly get, we took off towards Frederiksdal.
Just a few miles further east, Bjarke’s and Anders’ eyes lit up as we saw another iceberg we had to check out. Back into the dinghy and we were off. The right side had a gentle curve to the top, the left side was much steeper, but the two sides were about the same height. What drew our attention to this iceberg was that it gradually sloped to a perfect flat center, just about 3’ from the surface of the icy arctic water, providing us a perfect height to climb aboard.
Zerlina Yacht by Burger Boat Company - Happy Birthday
Bjarke donned a bright red US Coast Guard survival suit and was the first one to the dinghy. Richard drove the dinghy and pushed the nose straight into the berg and let the motor run so there was constant pressure between the two. With a successful dismount, the big red Bjarke was running around the ice. Feeling that everything was safe, Anders joined Bjarke and Richard stayed in the dinghy for security reasons.
Climbing onto a huge chunk of ice was like stepping on the moon. Something you just can’t imagine, so beautiful and scary at the same time. Tossing the anchor onto the ice, the three of us met and played like little kids seeing snow for the first time. There was a shallow pool, maybe 20 yards across, where we all drank the coolest and most refreshing water ever. Climbing to the top was, to say the least, very difficult and slippery. We slowed as we reached the tiny summit because we didn’t know what was on the other side. We were climbing with our hands and feet, but when we reached the top, we were able to stand and face a perfectly blue lake, about 80’ across, with the sea between us and the mountains of Greenland. Though it was so inviting to try and go swimming, we were sure the shock of the ice cold water would paralyze us. Instead, we slid down the hill we had just climbed. Not with a sled, or disk, or chunk of plastic, just on our rears, our backs and arms, laughing all of the way. We had too much adrenaline to feel how cold we should have been and, after a few moments of reflecting on where we were, what we had just seen and done, we got back in the dinghy and headed back to ZERLINA.
Italian photographer and yacht-spotter, Roberto Malfatti, has sent us this video and an image of a luxury yacht approaching the port of Livorno,Italy, on 3rd May, 2013. Although the name of the yacht cannot be seen on the vessel, it appears to be Sanlorenzo built superyacht, very likely an SL108 superyacht. Similar vessel to the one on the video below seems to be the Sanlorenzo 108 yacht Regine launched in 2012. In addition, Sanlorenzo has recently launched 3 beautiful yachts in just one week: Motor Yacht B2, Lilya and yacht Pioppi.
